2008 MADDEN PLAYOFFS

NFC CHAMPIONSHIP




Lincoln Financial Field

With the AFC Championship concluded, and the Miami Dolphins the first team in Super Bowl XLIII, now we focus on the NFC Championship game between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Chicago Bears. The Eagles still have a few players with niggling injuries, while the Bears defense will still be without both LE Adewale Ogunleye and DT Ian Scott. Chicago will be looking to reach the big dance, after recently making and losing Super Bowl XLI in OT against the undefeated Chargers, while the Eagles will be looking to reach the Super Bowl for the first time since their Super Bowl XXXIX loss to New England in the 2004 season. Lincoln Financial Field is packed and ready the go, while the going will be tough as it is a typical winter’s day in Philadelphia. Winner moves on to the Super Bowl, let’s go.

1st Quarter

Philadelphia started with the ball first, but about halfway into the drive, disaster struck for the Eagles. In the snowy conditions, Philly QB Billy Volek’s pass seemed to wobble out of his hand and straight down the throat of Donte Whitner. Bears start their first possession at their own 48 yard line, good field position, and begin with QB Kyle Orton handing off to RB Cedric Benson for a 7 yard gain. The drive would continue but eventually stall at the 9 yard line after an incomplete pass on 3rd down that would have been a certain touchdown for Chicago. Instead Kicker Robbie Gould would slot the 26 yard chip shot and the Bears would lead, 3-0.
(6 plays, 43 yards, T.O.P: 2:37, 11:35 remaining)

Chicago would get the ball back soon after, when Philly’s next possession ended in a punt. After a decent return from Devon Hester, the Bears started at their own 41 yard line. Taking over 5 minutes, the Bears carefully and methodically moved the ball downfield, using Benson on the ground and WR David Givens through the air. Moving the ball into the redzone, Chicago were looking dangerous, with the Eagles defense struggling to contain the Bears receivers. On the 13 yard line, Orton dropped back to pass and fired to WR Bernard Berrian who takes the catch and slips past a defender and brought down at the 5 yard line by Michael Lewis, stopping what could have been a touchdown. The next play, Benson took the ball but was brought down instantly for mo yards. On 3rd down, Orton dropped back to pass and threw towards TE Jerramy Stevens, who drops the difficult catch in the endzone, bringing up 4th down. Once again Gould had to come on and boot the short 22 yard try to extend Chicago’s lead over Philadelphia, 6-0.
(12 plays, 54 yards, T.O.P: 5:12, 4:33 remaining)

2nd Quarter

The Eagles got the ball back after the Bears field goal, starting at their own 18 yard line. Looking more settled than on their previous drives, Philadelphia moved the ball well, using RB Tatum Bell on the ground and in the air, with also WR’s Marty Booker and Stephen Quick used in the drive. Passing the 50 yard line, the Eagles kept the drive alive, converting on 2 third down’s back to back. Philly moved into the redzone soon after, when Volek found Quick for a nice catch and run, as the opening quarter came to an end. Into the second quarter and the Bears defense held up the good looking drive, the Eagles failing on 3rd down at the 13 yard line. Kicker David Akers came onto to kick the 30 yard try, which is good. Philly close the gap by 3, trailing 6-3.
(11 plays, 69 yards, T.O.P: 4:25, 14:48 remaining)

With the snow tumbling down in sheets, both teams were struggling to move the ball. Billy Volek was intercepted for the second time later in the quarter, however Chicago were not able to capitalize on the turnover and eventually turned the ball over themselves, when Kyle Orton was hit and sacked by Darwin Walker, the ball popping out in the tackle and recovered by the Eagles D. There was no further scoring for the quarter and at halftime Chicago are holding onto a slim lead, beating Philadelphia 6-3.

3rd Quarter

The wintery weather improved slightly during the halftime break, but the conditions were still tough. Chicago started with the ball and started well, but ultimately the drive broke down and they had to punt it away. Unfortunately the punt was a shank and the Eagles recovered on their own 40 yard line, their best field position for some time. In the long drive, lasting over 5 minutes, Philadelphia marched down the field, with Volek firing passes to Booker, Matt Schobel and Stephen Quick. Tatum Bell began to find holes in the Bears defense, notching up over 30 total yards on the drive. Working their way to the 10 yard line, Volek threw a laser pass to Booker, who catches the ball but is brought down awkwardly. Slow to get up and holding his arm, Booker is helped off the field. Now on the 3 yard line, Volek hands to Bell, but it’s a fake handoff and Volek turns and fires to a wide open Stephen Quick in the endzone for a touchdown, the first of the game. Philly fans find their voice as the Eagles take the lead from Chicago after the extra point, 10-6.
(14 plays, 60 yards, T.O.P: 5:21, 5:51 remaining)

The remainder of the quarter passed by with no scoring chances for either team, but the Eagles were looking to have the momentum with Chicago’s offence sputtering in the tough conditions.

4th Quarter

The Bears defense intercepted Volek for the third time at the start of the final quarter, sparking a few boos from pockets of the crowd. Chicago, however, again could not capitalize on the turnover and had to punt the ball away a few plays later. The punt was fantastic from Brad Maynard, coming to rest on the 11 yard line and putting Philly deep in their own territory. On the 11 with just over 10 minutes to play, the Eagles were able to get some breathing room with an excellent scamper from Bell, who had now gone over 70 rushing yards in the game. Volek threw deep to Stephen Quick on the next play, who had turned his man around and rumbled to the Bears 40 yard line. A shovel pass to Bell on the next play only gained 3 yards, with Bell nowhere to go. On 2nd down now and Volek hands to Bell, but he slips on the snow and gained just 2 yards. Needing 5 yards for a first down, Volek drops back to pass but finds no one open. Taking off down the field, Volek dives trying to reach the marker before he is tackled. Referees call for a measure, but the Eagles are short by inches. The crowd yells out for them to go for it but Coach Reid signals for the field goal unit. At the 31 yard line, the 48 yard try will be a tough kick for Akers in these conditions. The kick is up....and just good, Philly adding 3 points to their lead over the Bears, 13-6, with 8 minutes left to play.
(5 plays, 58 yards, T.O.P: 3:12, 8:07 remaining)

Chicago hadn’t looked like scoring ever since the 1st quarter of the game, not able to adapt to the snowy conditions as well as Philly. But now, with 8 minutes to go, they need a touchdown to tie this game. Both teams had to punt on their next possessions, and by the time Chicago got the ball back, there was just 3:39 left on the clock. Could they do it? Starting at their own 35 yard line, the Bears went to work. Benson received the ball and raced upfield, going over 70 rushing yards for the game. Under 3 minutes now and Chicago are in the no-huddle; Orton drops back and hits Berrian for a nice gain of 16 yards. Berrian had been well held for most of the day, but was able to get away that time. Now on the Philly 42 yard line, Orton fires again, finding Stevens for a gain of 8 yards, Bears at the 34 yard line, clock ticking down, now at 2:10. The Bears get a play off before the 2 minutes warning, a run by Benson netting 9 yards, downed at the 25 yard line.
Lining up after the 2 minute warning on second down, Orton hands off to Benson, but he is met immediately by an Eagles defensive lineman and dropped for no gain, 3rd down. On third down, Orton drops back to pass, but is attacked and cannot get away and is sacked by the ex-Bear Hunter Hillenmeyer. It comes down to this, 4th down and the Bears need 4 yards for a first down. With the crowd as loud as there’ve ever been all game, Orton barks out instructions on the line. There’s the snap, Orton drops back to pass, looks right then looks back left and throws to Bernard Berrian, but the ball hits Berrian on the fingertips and hits the deck, incomplete...game over. All the Philly offence needs to do now is take a few kneels and this one is in the books. The Philadelphia Eagles defeat the Chicago Bears 13-6 in the NFC Championship and will take on the Miami Dolphins in Super Bowl XLIII in Tampa.

2008 MADDEN PLAYOFFS



Raymond James Stadium

The big dance has finally arrived. All the media coverage, the interviews, the expert’s opinions and everything else is done. Only the Super Bowl remains.

The NFC’s Philadelphia Eagles finished the regular season with a record of 12-4, winning the NFC East division. Being the #1 ranked playoff team, they were awarded a bye in the first round, and in the divisional round beat a gallant Arizona outfit, 27-17. Then in the NFC Championship, the Eagles came from behind in the cold and snowy conditions to beat Chicago 13-6. The only main injury concern for Philly today is that they will be without WR Marty Booker, who went down with a serious injury in the win over the Bears. This is Philadelphia’s first Super Bowl since Super Bowl XXXIX. The Eagles are looking for their first Super Bowl victory here today.

The AFC’s Miami Dolphins finished the regular season with a record of 12-3-1, winning the AFC East division. The #3 ranked playoff team, Miami hosted and beat the Patriots, 27-23 in the wild card round. On the road in the divisional round, the Dolphins made short work of the Philip River-less Chargers, beating San Diego 40-17. Then in the AFC Championship, Miami were able to win at Indianapolis, 19-14, to reach back to back Super Bowls. The Dolphins haven’t won the Vince Lombardi Trophy since being victorious in Super Bowl VIII.
